The Ghost of Halloween Past.....Bwah ha ha!

I have mixed feelings about Halloween.  The kids get so excited to choose a costume, then actually wear it for our Halloween activities.  It's fun to see the delight on their faces.

I love that I get to eat all the good candy because my children are young enough to think that lollipops and Tootsie Rolls are the "good stuff".  Snort.  If only they knew.....

I love pretending like it's fall, even though it's usually still in the 90's this time of year here.

What I don't like, though, is trying to ration out the ridiculous amounts of candy my children get.  I don't like having to get everyone dressed up for not just Halloween night, but for Trunk or Treat and Boo Fest and whatever other parties we go to.  I have a hard time saying "no" to Halloween activities, even though I am going crazy by Halloween itself!  

I do really like making Halloween decor.  I've been pretty busy this year, so I've only made a few little things.  But, just in case you're feeling crafty this weekend, I thought I'd share with you a few of my favorite projects from Halloweens past.

Last year, I made this really cute Embroidery Hoop Wall Hanging.

If you're having a party, maybe you can use some ideas from my son's Pumpkin Party.

And finally, this FREE stitchery pattern is still available.  I LOVE it.  It might be one of my favorite, and easiest, embroidery projects.

Finally, tomorrow I'll be sharing a Halloween printable over at Pocket Full of Pink.  Check there tomorrow or come back here for a direct link.

Happy Halloween (in advance!)
